It features remixes by Jahcoozi, Kyborg, Brigade Mondaine and Trike. Lehmann – initially involved in the studio work as guest vocalist – had become a full member of the band by that time. However, diverging visions of approaches to music had lead to the fact that Mendelsson continued the work on their 2005 studio album with the Italian singer and guitarist Sandro Chiesura. Already in teurer denn je and in fett a great deal of attention had been paid to prosody* – the rhythmics and melodics of language – as compositional element of music. In Mendelsson the interest in the sonority of speech is extended to multilingualism. Besides pieces in German and Italian, on their album "31.".
there are three versions of the track "Schrittmacher" in the language combinations German-Italian, German-Mandarin and German-Turkish. The presentation of the album in the internet had been originally conceived as pure PR campaign by the band: On the key date of every month with 31 days – hence the album title "31." – the artists put a new piece from "31." on their MySpace page. In the period that followed the continuing presence in the net considerably changed both the self-conception and the working methods of Mendelsson. It also entailed a personal enhancement of the band: From 2008 on Evgenij Dvorkin consolidates the impulses in the creative work. This had lead to collaborations with visual artists and to medium-dated forms of performance and concept art in the internet. An other consequence is the increasing development of Mendelsson as a world-wide acting, virtual music ensemble with the proviso "Good pop music is the extraordinary combination of ordinariness".
